ACI Worldwide, a leading global provider of real-time electronic payment and banking solutions, has announced new cloud-based, omnichannel in-store payments capabilities within its UP Merchant Payments solution. ACI’s award-winning UP Merchant Payments now delivers greater control, flexibility and security for merchants as they move more services to the cloud.
The broadened UP Merchant Payments solution is the result of ACI’s acquisition of technology assets from providers RevChip and TranSend, a team of expert developers focused on next-generation terminal payment applications and management platforms. These new capabilities accelerate ACI’s vision of delivering merchants a next-generation, mobile-first digital payment experience in-store.
True omnichannel payments require strong integration between point-of-sale (POS) applications, payments software and payment terminals. ACI’s UP Merchant Payments solution now makes it even easier to integrate these critical systems, enabling a secure, frictionless consumer experience while reducing IT footprint and complexity in the store.
Sanjay Gupta, executive vice president, ACI Worldwide, said:
“The move to the cloud provides merchants with challenges as well as opportunities. To reap those opportunities, merchants require a technology platform that delivers agnostic control, scalability and security as well as integrated payments and fraud capabilities. The powerful technology assets we are announcing today allow ACI to deliver merchants an unmatched next-generation in-store digital payment experience. We are excited to welcome the RevChip and TranSend teams, which we already enjoy a successful partnership with, into the ACI family to drive further success.”
The financial details of the RevChip and TranSend asset acquisition were not disclosed; the acquisition is not expected to be financially material to ACI in 2019.
